Lynx's changelog does say it's a 1.1 feature...
(It sounds as if requesting with 1.0 and interpreting 1.1 is incorrect).

otoh, IE, NS6, w3m, links and Opera all give the "expected" page, not the
broken one.  (NS4 on Linux doesn't render the original page well enough to run
the test).  It's not clear what they do, exactly (w3m ignores it, as does links
- no surprise - so there's no design information available for free).  I
suppose it's possible to trace the transaction from Opera (strace won't help
here ;-).
